The Posh Club was initially created as an event for Producer Simon Casson’s 84-year-old mother and her friends. Since its early days in the local church hall, the Posh Club has grown to become a regular, glamourous event for people aged over 60. It takes place across four locations across the UK regularly providing an afternoon of high tea and cabaret for more than 100 guests. As well as providing an opportunity for entertainment and socialising, the Posh Club aims to enhance wellbeing and reduce the risk of isolation. It continually engages with attendees to improve events and to strengthen the relationship organisers have with their public.
It was initiated by artists and cultural organisations and encourages people to participate through special events. Posh Club is local and national in orientation and concerned with neighbourhood & community, anti-discrimination, equality and social justice and participation. The project is ongoing.
